The domino recession?

The signs are pointing to recession not only in the U.S., the reports on the state of the global economy are anything but optimistic

The Global Risk Report 2008, which was compiled with the help of leading financial companies, concludes that a recession is imminent in the USA, the largest single economy. The risks were rated on a five-point scale based on a survey of about 100 leading businessmen, politicians and academics. According to the survey, the greatest risks were posed by the crisis in the financial system, further increases in food prices, the sensitivity of global supply routes and increasingly expensive energy carriers. These four risk complexes serve as the basis for this year’s meeting of the World Economic Forum in Davos.

Political and economic uncertainty is at its highest level in a decade, which is why 2008 has become a year of crisis worldwide. It is considered likely that prices for real estate in the U.S. will continue to fall. This is also true for Great Britain and other European countries where speculative bubbles have developed in the real estate market. There is a risk of a general decline in consumption and a recession, the report says. The likelihood of a drop in GDP growth in China was forecast at 3.5 points, which could cost the global economy 0.25 percentage points and up to a trillion dollars.

Europe and japan measure greenhouse gases via satellite

Europe and Japan measure greenhouse gases via satellite the weather satellite organization EUMETSAT and the Japanese space workers Jaxa cooperate in the production of greenhouse gases in the Earth’s atmosphere. "Japan is a pioneer," said the Eumetsat General Director Alain Raier on Tuesday (14. May 2019) At the signing of the contract in Darmstadt.

The Agreement has the purpose of reapping a monitoring system for carbon dioxide in order to get a deeper understanding for climate change. Japanese Gosat satellites have been on a nearby oriental carbon dioxide and methane for ten years. European Metop satellites collect measurement data for the weather forecast and the monitoring of the climate.

The aim is also to achieve in the course of the Paris Climate Protection Agreement by 2025 with Japan’s luckless and dense amounts of carbon dioxide and methane in the atmosphere, said Bojan Bojkov from Eumetsat. It needs several missions to get good measurement data. EUMETSAT also cooperate with China and the USA.

The foisted civilians of kunduz

The Kunduz inquiry committee once again clearly shows why former Defense Minister Jung had to go

Hardly anything puts more prere on the mood at home than the news that there have been innocent victims in a robust peacekeeping operation that is actually a war. Therefore, and probably also in view of the approaching Bundestag elections, the Ministry of Defense, but also the Chancellor’s Office, has obviously tried to keep the unpleasant truth hidden as long as possible.

Bmw puts with the “concept e” an electric scooter before

Bmw puts with the 'concept e' an electric scooter before

Munchen, 22. September 2011 – How electric vehicles are also used scooters mostly for short routes in the city. A rough changeover or even a restriction in the use of these two beads, as motorists burred on E-cars, is therefore not expected. Histake so that many motorcycle manufacturers are trying to jump on the e-train. Even BMW is now presenting his idea from an electric scooter: the "Concept E".

Known design

The E-Scooter of BMW is recognizable as a clear member of the two-wheeler family of the Munchner manufacturer. That’s how it gets "Concept E" Like other BMW models, the so-called split face from the cladding top to the front-wheel skating, the twin-tipping spoiler in the area of the bug trim and the floating panels of the front side panel designed in the form of a boomerang. A short-cut windshield and a short held rear give the E-Scooter a more dynamic optics.

Video cameras replace reverse mirror

The colors should also give the "Concept E" more optical dynamics. The lacquered in black and white linings are supplemented by yellow acrylic glass-made side panels of the battery and drive unit. The design of the light metal roller leans against the design language of the cars of BMW I. The E-Scooter was equipped by the BMW engineers with back levels in the form of two video cameras integrated into the jerk light. These project the events behind the E-Scooter on two LCD monitors in the cockpit. The speed and other relevant data are displayed digitally.
